At a Crossroads (Weekend Anthropology)

We open each ceremony with homage to Elegua.

We offer a libation of water,

and say a simple prayer to him:

“Omi Tutu, Ana Tutu,

Tutu Ile,

Tutu Laroye”

Elegua opens the doors to all endeavors.

He is the guardian of the Crossroads

and the messenger to God.

Prayer does not use up artificial energy, doesn’t burn up any fossil fuel, doesn’t pollute.

Neither does song, neither does love, neither does the dance.

~ Margaret Mead

As Buhdy said recently, we do seem to be at a crossroads.
